Steelers RB DeAngelo WIlliams says signing was easy decision


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) After playing his first nine seasons with the Panthers, running back DeAngelo Williams signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Steelers this offseason. Among his many thoughts on the signing, he called it an easy decision, according to the Sporting News.

“I didn’t know they wanted me. I had never been on a visit before,” Williams said. “I was with the same organization for nine years. When I got the call and they said, 'hey we want to bring you in for a visit' I took it as that. Had they said we wanted to bring you in for a signing I would have had a different mindset. I had no idea what was going to transpire when I got here.”

Williams added that he is willing to do whatever it takes to get the team to the next level.

“It’s the opportunity to take maybe one or two reps or whatever it takes to make this team better,” Williams said. “That is what I will do. I want to make it to a Super Bowl and win it. I know this team has that potential and they can do it.

“Coming here was an easy decision. This is a Super Bowl contending team. Every veteran out there, veteran or rookie, they want to go to the Super Bowl and win it and get the best opportunity. I think the best opportunity is here in Pittsburgh.”

Williams has rushed for 6,846 yards on 1,432 carries with 46 rushing touchdowns in his career.


Steelers sign former Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) The Steelers signed DeAngelo Williams to their roster on Friday, the running back confirmed on his personal Twitter account. 

After nine seasons with the Panthers, Williams was cut early this offseason. With Carolina, he carried the ball 1,432 times for 6,846 yards and 46 touchdowns. His best years came in 2008 and 2009, the only times he ran for over 1,000 yards in a single season.

According to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Williams' deal is worth $4 million over two years. However, his second year isn't guaranteed and is essentially a one-year, $2 million deal. 

Williams ran for 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2008. Injuries limited Williams to 219 yards and zero touchdowns in 2014. 

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was the first to report this story

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams says he's been released


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams told WBTV on Monday that he has been released.

"I don't feel bitter at all," Williams said. "[Stewart] had the hot hand at the end of the season. He's a great running back, obviously, uh, I don't feel bitter at all. It's a business."

Williams has spent his entire nine-year career with the Panthers. He dealt with a variety of injuries in 2014, including a thigh, ankle and broken hand.

As a result of the release, the Panthers have about $6.6 million in dead cap money, according to the NFL Network.


Panthers' Gettleman: DeAngelo Williams' future up in air


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman met with the media at the combine in Indianapolis on Thursday, and the team's salary cap situation was a major topic. 

Gettleman said the team is in better cap shape than last year, but "still not out of the hole". 

A primary reason for the cap problems is the running back position. Former GM Marty Hurney signed long-term contracts with Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams that will cost a combined $14.7 million against the cap in 2015. 

Williams, who will be 32 next year, is a likely candidate for a salary cap casualty. He appeared in just six games in an injury-plagued 2014, rushing for 219 yards and no touchdowns. 

Gettleman said he's talked to Williams about his future, but he wouldn't answer questions about whether Williams would return to the Panthers.


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart looking to build off strong finish


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/27/2015) Over the last five weeks of the regular season, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart rushed for 486 yards, second only to Dallas' DeMarco Murray. Stewart followed that up with 123 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over Arizona.

"I'm really excited for next year," Stewart told the team's website. "You have to find your zone throughout the offseason. It starts now."

Stewart got the chance to be a workhorse when DeAngelo Williams fractured his hand Week 13. ESPN.com reports there's a "strong possibility" the Panthers will release the 31-year-old Williams this offseason, leaving Stewart, 27, as the unquestioned starter.

"It's just part of the journey," Stewart said of the individual success he had toward season's end. "The moment you start focusing on that, you miss out on other things along the journey."
